Welcome everyone, to the debate that's far more exciting then the presidential ones! It's time for a MOVIE OF THE WEEK!!! This week's movie is chosen from a list of Christine Hennig's fave movies, and I thought it would be fun to revisit some old ones mixed in with the new ones.. So this week's movie is...

COFFEE HOUSE RENDEZVOUS!!! A one of a kind film if there ever was one...

Here's the link to the film (a two parter)

I can't help it--I'm a folkie at heart, and I come from the midwest, so I love this movie. It brings the 60s and church camp all rushing back to me.

I think it exists in the middle of the real vs. fake counterculture spectrum, with Columbia Revolt on the extreme real side and RFD Greenwich Village on the extreme fake side.

Of course, it was sponsored by the Coffee Institute, or something like that, so we see as much COFFEE DRINKING as possible. Just in case you forget the real point of the film. And this was back in the days when coffee was just coffee, and not super-mocha skinny latte with hazelnut foam. Just coffee in styrofoam cups, or even paper cups with those cardboard handles that they used to have.

Sorry, it may sound like I'm getting off-topic, but those cups with the little cardboard handles say more to me about my experience of the 60s (as a child in the midwest) than anything one used to be able to buy in a head shop.
